2. An exact replica of the fire observation tower in Whitefish (Montana, USA)
In the old days, among the forest wilderness, most often at the highest point, fire observation towers were built, on which specially hired people carried patrols. Now they have already refused the services of firefighters, but the towers remained and were safely bought by lovers of recreation in the wilderness. And this is not surprising, given the views that open from the height of the towers. According to the author of Novate.ru, admirers of a secluded pastime are so keen on such buildings that they begin to build country houses in this style. For example, a resident of Whitefish, Montana turned to specialists from the architectural firm MT-Creative Architects, which designed an exact replica of a fire observation tower at the top of a wooded slope.
The customer can now enjoy panoramic views of the surroundings on the top of the building, which has a shared living area with a living room that easily converts into a bedroom, dining room and home office. There is also a kitchen area with everything you need to indulge in a home-cooked meal. Open balconies have been created along the perimeter of the "observation tower", where you can relax, enjoying the changing beauty of nature, clean air and birdsong.
The middle level of the fire tower has a large terrace where you can even sleep in fine weather or have fun parties with friends. But the utility room and the bathroom are located right at the entrance on the lower tier of the tower.
